Amazing that left-wing women went off the reservation. The Dems must be afraid they will lose a large number of their female base. You cant be the party of Women’s Rights while sanctioning the groping, exploitation and rape of women.
Female Democratic senators call on Al Franken to resign
By Marisa Schultz, NY Post, December 6, 2017:
WASHINGTON — A half-dozen female senators on Wednesday called on Sen. Al Franken to resign in the wake of new sexual misconduct allegations.
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) was the first of Franken’s fellow Senate Democrats to call for his resignation and was quickly followed by Democratic Sens. Mazie Hirono of Hawaii, Claire McCaskill of Missouri, Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire Patty Murray of Washington and Kamala Harris of California.
“While Senator Franken is entitled to have the Ethics Committee conclude its review, I believe it would be better for our country if he sent a clear message that any kind of mistreatment of women in our society isn’t acceptable by stepping aside to let someone else serve,” Gillibrand said in a statement posted on Facebook.
“Today, I am calling on my colleague Al Franken to step aside,” Hirono (D-Hawaii) agreed on Twitter. “ I’ve struggled with this decision because he’s been a good Senator and I consider him a friend. But that cannot excuse his behavior and his mistreatment of women.”
The announcement comes as TIME Magazine named “The Silence Breakers” as their “Person of the Year” to honor the #metoo movement against sexual harassment.
Franken has denied the latest allegations of groping but has apologized for previous behavior.
He said he’d cooperate with an Ethics Committee investigation.
